of the state of michigan. she led the fight working with senator roberts. and they worked together not just on the substance but worked together in a manner that allowed it to be bipartisan. i've made it a priority in my work representing the people of pennsylvania to keep pennsylvania's agricultural industry and our rural economy strong to support families in pennsylvania. agriculture is our state's largest industry. pennsylvania's farm gain value -- which is another way of describing cash receipts to growers -- and the last number that we have, which is a 2010 number, was $5.7 billion. a lot of people who probably haven't spent much time in pennsylvania think of it as a -- a state of big cities and small towns but they may miss the -- the substantial agricultural economy that we have. agribusiness in our state is a $46.4 billion industry. 17.5% of pennsylvanians are employed in the so-called food and fiber system. and one of the questions we have to ask is: what does this all mean? well, i think it certainly means that at least we need a five-year farm bill, not -- not a short-term farm b

. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman from michigan. mr. levin: i ask unanimous consent to revise and extend my remarks. the speaker pro tempore: without objection. mr. levin: i did not know i would follow the distinguished majority leader. i just want to say -- and i also want to talk about plan c -- br for he or anybody else to come on the floor and say the president hasn't proposed spending cuts, it isn't true and it undercuts the necessary level of trust to find common ground. that kind of a statement should not be made. i sat in the rules committee for three hours, participated for two last night. there was no reference to plan c, and it came up just a few minutes secretly before midnight. the purpose of plan c is to try to get votes for plan b within the republican conference. and what it does is to undermine the affordable care act by eliminating the protections and the joint task committee said it would result in a loss of health insurance coverage for 420,000 people. it would repeal the block grant, the social services block grant, services for millions of americans, and it wasn't m

minutes to the gentleman from michigan, the distinguished ranking member of the committee on ways and means, mr. levin. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman from michigan is recognized for three minutes. without objection. mr. levin: this is an important moment, an important moment. these bills move the nation dangerously closer to the cliff, with only 11 days before our nation would go over it. they make finding common ground far more difficult with only 11 days left to find it. these bills are not a plan. they're a ploy. they are bills to nowhere. they undermine trust so essential for agreement. we've just heard it. the republicans claim that letting the tax rate go up from 35% to 39.6% on income over $1 million is not a tax hike because it would happen on its own. but then they say that if the tax cut would go up on income below $1 million by happening on its own, it would be the biggest tax increase in history. that is patently that is inconsistent. the far worse than hypocrisy is the way they deseen their tax provision. for those with incomes over one million, they provide

can get on air force one and go to michigan and do a rally with union members talking about right to work, then i think the commander in chief can take the time to get involved and get this marine home. we live with a very simple maxim in the military. we leave no man behind. i think the president of the united states of america should not depart washington, d.c. if jon hammmar is not going home. >> gretchen: do you believe that jay carney, when he said he didn't know about it, that he didn't actually know about it, or that he wanted to rethink how he was going to answer the question and get back to the reporter? >> either up with is bad -- either one is bad. if you don't know about it, that's unconscionable. if you're trying to play games with the life this marine -- this is despicable, this picture of him chain to do a cot. this is a war veteran, someone giving to give the last full measure of devotion to this country in iraq and afghanistan. we have an administration that has seemingly turned its back on him. i think everyone should be calling the white house right now today an
